    Also I have noticed none of the ducks where brooding the eggs is this because they are so young or the weather been too cold, new to this and would appreciate any advice

    i m not sure why they wont brood the eggs but it also not the time of the year for them to be moms yet i would wait until spring to let them brood any eggs i have a broody hen that will get after me when i try to get the eggs from her but it too old the eggs would die
